.5 billion burden to the u.s. government and individuals. about $746 per person. just about three quarters of those costs of excessive drinking were due to lost workplace productivity. 11% of it from health care expenses. 9% from law enforcement and other criminal justice costs. 6% for motor vehicle or crash costs for impaired driving. excessive drinking was defined as binge or heavy drinking or any drinking by pregnant or underaged youth. alcoholism is not an easy thing to deal with, either by yourself or alongside someone you love. this brings me to another story i want to tell you about, a home for alcoholics that lets them drink and is funded by you, by me, the taxpayers. no matter what you think, it's an interesting concept for sure, and these types of places are starting to pop up more and more frequently around the country. chris welsh spent the better part of a month working on the story at one of these so-called wet houses. he joins me now from minneapolis to talk about it. chris, thanks again for being back on the show. let me ask you to start -- how did you get interested in thi

to delay getting mammograms is starting another tough argument. the u.s. preventative services task force says most men should not bother with screening for prostate cancer. they say the psa test does more harm potentially than good, that it barely reduces deaths and leads to a lot of unnecessary treatment and complications. now will is already some pushback. for example, the head of the prostate cancer foundation, a patient group, calls the new recommendation "a terrible mistake." the american neurological association says they are still working on their response. to help me sort it out for you, i'm with dr. christopher lega i legathitis. what will you tell your patients now if anything different based on what's just happened? >> i think first of all, i haven't received the official report or had the chance to review it in detail. but based on the availability information, the dilemma that we discussed in the clinic every day is actually reflected in this decision which suggests that there is harm and purely focused on the benefits of detecting cancer ignores the fact that many patients
